Sorry about the lack of a ‘Happy Resurrection Day’ (aka Easter) post, or Passover, or Ramadan, or whatever other religious holidays are happening these days, but various events took place I had to deal with, vehicle or other issues, and there are other issues forthcoming. Which is why now is the time to post the next ‘When Bad Events Lead to Good Outcomes’ snippet post—and what with all the bad events going on in this world these days (inflation, various divide and rule agendas involving race, gender, politics, economics, the ‘pandemic treaty’ and digital currencies and whatnot the powers-that-shouldn’t-be are trying to force on the rest of us), good outcomes are what we need, and not just from the realm of spirituality.
Believe it or not, but physical reality can bring about good outcomes even when truly evil events occur, because just as God controls the spiritual realm, He also controls the physical world. And years ago, I heard a story from a friend that shocked the heck out of me, thinking such an event could never happen because—it just seemed impossible! I heard part of this story at a snack party after Christmas caroling about a week before Christmas in the early 2000s, led by a pastor of the local non-denominational church I had just joined a year or so ago.
I and some others were sitting at a dinner table near where snacks were served at another table in the home of one of the carolers, eating the snacks. This friend and a couple of others were discussing something I wasn’t really paying any attention to, and then this friend, who was clearly Asian, said this:

Sorry I have not posted here since July 12, and it is already August! But when family members come out to visit and you have to go to El Paso for eye exams and you develop nasal issues with a deviated septum and it takes a week or so to get back to normal…
This snippet post concerns Part Two of The Murder Rule, where lead character Bobby Jones has a decision to make regarding his mid-level membership in the New Age and (satanic) Corion-worshiping cult founded by the evil Swami Negran, the Church of the Circle of Unity. He had also been a member of a Christian church in the fictitious Bay Area city of Richmont led by a pastor, Ike Lawson, who tried to get the prodigal band Sound Unltd—Bobby was a temporary roadie for them in 1993—banned from the USA. When Lawson refused to consider the possibility that even the ‘devil worshiping’ Sound Unltd could accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (which they did, in 2001), which Bobby had brought up with Lawson, Bobby then left that church for good. Then he committed to the Richmont Circle of Unity church led by the evil Cole Blessing (the main ‘bad guy’ in the trilogy second novel, The Prophesied Band), became mid-level, level twenty, and mentored young initiates, including one named ‘Cordian,’ who would bully Bobby in ‘initiation sessions’ that Bobby led.
But on the night of May 1, 1996, an event happened that Bobby witnessed which traumatized him far more than any bully could! It happened in the basement of Cole Blessing’s new St. Xenos ‘church’ palatial estate. Being level twenty, Bobby was forced to watch the event (as did ‘Cordian’ and others). Also mentioned in this snippet is the main bad guy in the third trilogy novel, The Prodigal Band, Mark Besst, a tech oligarch who became inhabited by the satanic Corion.
